Congratulations are in order for Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen: They're expecting a baby! The Hart of Dixie actress and the Star Wars actor confirmed to Us Weekly that Bilson is pregnant with their first child.
"They've both talked about this for awhile and are so excited," a Bilson insider told Us. "Everyone is beyond thrilled for them."
Another friend confirmed the couple of seven years' joy. "They will make wonderful, hands-on parents," the pal said.
Bilson, who won our hearts as high school mean girl-turned-softie Summer Roberts on The OC, recently discussed her commitment to Christensen. "I'm a really good girlfriend — I always put all that first in my life," she says in Cosmopolitan's May 2013 issue. "I'm definitely the person who would make him his favorite dinner to come home to."
"I definitely have family on the brain," she added. "Having kids is something I want to see in my future — I hope."

Bilson also opened up about Christensen to Health magazine in its June issue. "He's so incredibly supportive and considerate," she said. "It's so basic — that should be there. Because these things are so much more important when you're older."
As for rumors that the couple will get married soon, she explained that her love is, "just there for me no matter what. And vice versa."
The duo met on the set of Jumper in 2007 and got engaged in December 2008. Though they called off their engagement in August 2010, they reconciled three months later.
With a baby on the way, we wouldn't be surprised if Bilson joined the club of pregnant-and-engaged celebrities!
We also have another wish — perhaps her former on- and off-screen love, Adam Brody, will soon announce that his wife, Leighton Meester, is pregnant. Seth and Summer having babies at the same time?! It's almost as good as them being together forever.
